Bradley University Reviews
I love the environment at Bradley! The campus is beautiful and it is easy to feel at home. Roaming off campus can feel risky however. The "Bradley Bubble" makes it easy to not leave, but I encourage you to experience the rest of Peoria with friends. The dorms are great (except Wyckoff) and the Student Center is a life saver. It's easy to meet new people and make friends with the social activities planned within the first few days of arriving on campus. Getting involved in a sorority was a really good idea for me personally and I think students should at least try rushing. I met my closest friends in my sorority and I do not regret joining my house. I recommend meeting your roommate on the sights they provide, my experience with random roommates was not great. Get involved quickly, it will make it much easier to make friends and keep them. Bradley is an amazing place full of amazing people and amazing professors.
They had everything, such as the Newman Center, Saint Mark's Church, Greek Life, 2 quad areas, and great dinning halls. The best part is that they have an awesome education program where I would be able to start it as a freshman and work in the Elementary schools right away with over 100 hours in the classroom. After the 4 years, I would be directed on the right path towards the career path that I am interested in. I didn't find anything that needed improvements and am so excited to start school in the fall of 2018!
If you decide to live on campus, or are forced to because you're a first or second year student, the rooms can be a little annoying. All of the rooms have lofted beds, however, some of the are able to be unlofted. If a person is unfortunate enough to have the beds that can't be unlofted, the distance to the ceiling can be annoying. Especially if there's a pipe above the bed, it can cause some grievances. Williams and Geisert are pretty popular dorms considering there's a dining hall in both of them. Heitz on the other hand is a popular choice by upper classmen because of the spaciousness of the rooms, and the fact that you can live in a block with up to 6 people. University hall is a freshman-only hall that is definitely the most popular building for incoming freshman. I personally lived in U-hall my first year and would definitely recommend it for all first year students. It provides a community of people who are in the same new situation as you are, making the transition into college much more comfortable!
